CSK vs DC Team Prediction: Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Capitals – 25 September 2020 (Dubai). Two teams with a really good top-order will be up against each other in this important game of IPL 2020.
Chennai Super Kings will take on Delhi Capitals in the league match of IPL 2020 aka Indian Premier League which will be played at the Dubai International Stadium in Dubai.
Chennai Super Kings have won one and lost one of their games till now in the tournament. They faced a cruel defeat in their last game against the Royals where their bowlers were smashed throughout the game. The batting form of Faf du Plessis has been a huge plus for the side and he would like to continue his top-form in this game as well. Chennai would hope that Ambati Rayudu will be fit for this game and will make their middle-order stronger.
Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, won their first game of the tournament in a super-over and would definitely be pumped up for this game. The performance of Marcus Stoinis as an all-rounder in the last game has given a whole new dimension to his side. Delhi’s top-order would like to make an impact in this game and team will definitely miss the services of Ravichandran Ashwin who will be out because of a shoulder injury.
Pitch Report – This pitch will not allow a high scoring contest in this game as it is a sticky surface with variable bounce. Anything between 160-170 will be a really good score on this track.
